Eels unveil cheerful AF video for ‘Today Is The Day’

Starring Mike Mitchell of Netflix hit show 'LOVE'

Eels have unveiled the feel-good, life-affirming music video for new single ‘Today Is The Day’. See it first on NME below.

Taken from Eels’ hotly-anticipated 12th album ‘The Deconstruction’, the video was directed by Gus Black, the video stars Mike Mitchell of Netflix hit show LOVE on “a journey of intense purpose”.

Speaking of the clip, Eels say: “But where is he going? What’s driving his extreme focus and joyous resolve to seize the day? Find out in this video accompaniment to one of EELS’ most uplifting songs to date.”


As for what to expect from the record itself, E said:“Here are 15 new EELS tracks that may or may not inspire, rock, or not rock you. The world is going nuts. But if you look for it, there is still great beauty to be found.

“Sometimes you don’t even have to look for it. Other times you have to try to make it yourself. And then there are times you have to tear something apart to find something beautiful inside.”

‘The Deconstruction’ is released on April 6.
